Rumors about the game began when an Amazon listing featured Dead Island 2 exclusive editions, sparking excitement within the community. Now that the game has officially been announced at Gamescom, you’ll experience the nightmarish rendition of Los Angeles, also known as HELL-A, while battling hordes of zombies in the vast sandbox world.

You can check out the official Gamescom Reveal trailer and the description here:

You are bitten, infected, but immune and stronger for it. Learn how to harness the virus coursing through your veins as you paint LA red with the insides of countless zombie enemies on a path to discover the truth about the outbreak, about who – or what – you are and survive. Slice, pulverize and smash your way through the horror-soaked streets of the city of Angels, dispatching the undead who get in your way. No biggie but the fate of the city – and all of humanity – is in your infected hands.
